To investigate risk factors for thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) after bone marrow transplantation (BMT), the levels of three clotting factors (7, 9 and 10) and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) were measured. Among 46 consecutive patients who underwent BMT, six developed TMA and 40 did not. The levels of the clotting factors and HGF did not differ significantly between the six patients with TMA and the 40 patients without it. In two patients who developed TMA during the earlyperiod after BMT… CONTINUE READING
